On the farm that I grew-up on, the next house on our road had two of these trees. Everyone around enjoyed the apples. We called them Pumpkin Sweets. My father had eaten this apples all his life and they were his favorite. No one else had this Apple in our community, and many had no idea what I was talking about as an adult. You have no idea my excitement when I found out that you had my family???s favorite apple. Now another generation will enjoy this delicious apple.

We had an old tree when my parents bought their place in 1955. It died in 2016, but was truly the sweetest apple imaginable.

These are really great eating apples, and it only takes about 2 1/2 to make an apple crisp or pie. Oh, did I tell you they are also very large ; )
